Hairless cats are a novelty to some people, but to others, they are simply their beloved pets. The bald appearance is a unique feature that sets them apart from other breeds that sport a full and thick coat of fur. One of the most popular hairless breeds is the Sphynx. Others include the bambino, donskoy, elf cat, peterbald, and Ukrainian Levkoy. If you’re not currently the owner of one of these amazing cat breeds, here are twenty interesting facts about them.
They are stunning in appearance
Not everyone would agree with this statement, but bear with us for a moment. Most people are used to a fluffy cat, but once you get used to the striking difference of a hairless cat, they really are quite beautiful. The lack of fur allows you to see their form without distraction of the interfering fur coat. It begins with the large eyes that are housed within a wrinkly brow and forehead. Some hairless breeds have unique markings on their body, making them interesting to look at. It really is fascinating to see what a cat really looks like under their coats. The Sphynx breed often does not have eyelashes or whiskers, giving them a clean shaven appearance, but the other breeds do. Those who do have whiskers and eyelashes are just as lovely because it enhances the beauty of their feline facial features with high cheekbones and huge eyes. If you give them a chance and have an open mind, you too will see the redemptive qualities in the appearance of a hairless cat.
